pelling is a city which is full of beautiful landscapes, lush greenery, flowerscapes. had a comfortable and pleasant stay at lumthang resorts. would recommend the roads to made more driver friendly, as majority still are kachha roads. the lights/ illumination in the main market as well as resorts is also very less, making visibility difficult during night travel. availability of south indian and jain food is scarce and hardly have 1 or 2 restaurants serving them. on positive aspects, it's a town
